    Hang in there ...in the long it will serve you well.

    Perhaps it would help by looking at some graphic images for the same subject matter? Compare the two and then re-approach your assignment....

    Hmm, I don't think you have that option. You can't choose which older version you want to upgrade to. You can buy/rent (for full price) either CS6 or CC. "Upgrade" pricing only applies if you...

    Thanks everyone.

    I think I might just upgrade one or two versions away, which would hopefully minimise any problems....

  • Good source for foil stamped pocket folders?

    Anyone know of a good source for pocket folders off hand?

    I only need to order 500 or 1000 flat gold foil stamped.

    TIA for any input!

        Ahh I had to google it, We call em kit covers or presentation folders. Most printers should be able to print them and the send em out to be die cut. Your quantities with foil are gonna be expensive.

          well, nobody here will take MY word for it... maybe a couple of nice estimates will make a difference.

              The last gold foil stamping I did was at Tilford Printing in Papillion Ne.
              The last pocket folder I did was at Dilley Manufacturing, Des Moines, IA.

                pocket folder/foil stamp recommendation...

                This is a shop I used to work at. We did tons of foil stamped pocket folders. The customer will need to provide the die, or have one made, but you probably already knew that.

                http://www.aeprinters.com - This place is in Lansing, MI - About an hour and a half northwest of Detroit.

                This place does the die cuts, and the foil stamps in house. They use two ancient Heidelberg letterpresses, one for die-cutting/numbering, and one for foil stamping. I would guess the job would be about a thousand to twelve hundred US, but I don't know the cost of the foil, the cover stock, and whether they have some in stock they can use vs. having to buy a fresh roll, which in the case of foil, is HIGHLY recommended anyway, as the older it gets the more brittle it becomes...

                I learned a ton about letterpress, a personal fave among presses, from the guy who does stuff at this shop. He's a craftsman, a true master of the LP. I highly recommend this place for their quality, but the sales people and most of the front office folks are morons... FYI and good luck...

                      I did find someone locally, here in upstate NY, who did a nice job for a reasonable price.

                      I used BQP, and you can get a free estimate from them here, but depending on where you are located, the shipping can get pricey.

                      Hope that helps some!

                        Very Cool

                        I'm trying to set up my files and i'm not sure if i should do black on white or reverse it so that the logos are white on black?

                          in my experience, white folders show more dirt than black ones.

                              oh, lol! Black and white folders might be neat!

                              I set mine up as black on white, the black being where the foil would cover. That's how the print shop requested them from me.
